There is a beauty and a curse that flows through Incredipede. For the creative, this game offers a wealth of fun experimental puzzles to work around and solve. Little is restricted, and that is a gutsy move in its own right, but that is where Incredipede stands out. Not only is the art style beautiful and the music lovely, but the gameplay and freeform puzzles make it worth playing.
Sadly, the very reason why this game succeeds is also why it fails. Numerous missions can lead to nothing more than trial & error sessions, leaving the player far more frustrated than enamored. Some of the earlier pre-constructed missions are evident of this, as I found myself struggling to succeed after making even the most minor errors. I often found myself knowing exactly what to do, but still ended up trying over and over until luck saw me through. This is the price a game of this design has to pay, and luckily it doesn't break the feeling of wonder, but risks embittering the player after so long.
Incredipede is a rewarding game for the patient player, and is not for everyone, but the lush artwork and immense customization for both the monster and level maker offers anyone who can overlook its flaws a great time, even if it grows stale after so long. Above all, its small pricetag all but frees the player from buyer remorse.
If you like what you read or still feel uncertain, please, give it a try. Incredipede is definitely worth your time.
